    Hong Kong Phooey Studio Master Model Sheet Art by Willie Ito (Hanna-Barbera, 1974). Hong Kong Phooey premiered on ABC-TV on 9/7/74. It starred Scatman Crothers as Penrod Pooch by day, Hong Kong Phooey -- Super Hero by night. Here is an inside look at how this show was developed. This is the original artwork for the studio's Master model sheet from the hand of famed animator Mr. Willie Ito. It would be printed, published and distributed to all in the animation process. Also in his lot is a series of twenty pieces of Willie Ito's original character design artwork for the creation of this show. A personal Willie Ito hand-signed Letter of Authenticity is included with this lot (which also has original artwork from his hand). The art is in graphite, included are development/concept drawings of Penrod Pooch, Hong Kong Phooey, The Phooeymobile, Spot, and other incidental characters in addition to the rare original studio model sheet. This important lot is a pure piece of H-B history! Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition overall.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
